Printing From The RichText Control

The on-line documentation on using the RichText control to print tells how it is supposed to work. It does not mention two basic problems. First, the RichText control doesn't work with the common dialog hDC. Second, to skip the error generated when using the Printer object hDC, you must use On Error Resume Next. These code fragments show how to print properly from the RichText control:
 On error resume next
printer.print ""
richtext.selprint printer.hdc
printer.enddoc
This wrapper function uses both the CommonDialog control and the Printer object:
 Function FilePrintDlgProc(rprnDlg As _
	CommonDialog, rRTF As _
	RichTextBox) As Boolean
	On Local Error GoTo Error_Handler:
	With rprnDlg
		.CancelError = True
		.Flags = cdlPDReturnDC + cdlPDNoPageNums
		If rRTF.SelLength = 0 Then
			.Flags = .Flags + cdlPDAllPages
		Else
			.Flags = .Flags + cdlPDSelection
		End If
		.ShowPrinter
		On Local Error Resume Next
		Printer.Print ""
		rRTF.SelPrint Printer.hDC
		Printer.EndDoc

		FilePrintDlgProc = True

		End With
		Exit Function
Error_Handler:
	If Err <> cdlCancel Then
		MsgBox "Error " & Err & "; " & Error
	End If

End Function
